More planning inspiration – The Wedding Salon

This month is packed with bridal shows! On Monday evening (September 9), I took a trip downtown to the Loews Madison Hotel to check in on The Wedding Salon.  Brides and grooms were treated to the sights & sounds of both local wedding professionals and national companies. Here are just a few of the local vendors at the event:

Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse was out in force at the show, with representation of all of the Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia restaurants. I ran into Ellen and Ann from the RC team as they mixed and mingled. In NoVA, Ruth’s Chris can accommodate wonderful rehearsal dinners in Arlington, Fairfax and Tysons Corner, with the Arlington location (on the 11th floor in Crystal City), available for wedding receptions with a gorgeous view! And did you know that you can now have the Ruth’s Chris dining experience at your off premise event? That’s right – Ruth’s Chris now caters!  

Hannelore’s of Olde Town Alexandria displayed the latest in bridal fashions, along with groom’s attire by Savvi by Sarno Formalwear. Over the next few weeks, the salon will hold two trunk shows and a blow out sale – be sure to check our Events page for dates and details. 

Jim Augerinos of Perfect Honeymoons & Holiday Travel was on hand to dispense advice for that trip of a lifetime. As an avid traveler and experienced honeymoon & destination wedding planner, Jim will get you where you want to go in style!

Aren’t these favors and edible place cards adorable? They are from the Kalorama Cookie Company, founded by Patti Greenstein. 

This is not your mother’s table setting! Mix modern and classic styles with your Registry at Bloomingdale’s – and when you register at the Tysons Corner location, you’ll get a great goodie bag that includes the latest issue of Brides & Weddings.

It wouldn’t be a bridal show if you couldn’t chat with the catering professionals from area venues. Here are Helena and Nebeyou of Five Star Catering at the Fort Myer Officers’ Club. “Meeting your needs and exceeding your expectations” is their motto. 

To make your wedding reception memorable, event lighting & musical entertainment can be provided by DJ Angie D Entertainment.

Bridal shows are a wonderful way to put your senses to work when it comes to wedding planning. To keep up with coming events, check our website’s calendar regularly!
